ADS-5 Red Raven Dropship
My first dropship to be posted here. I'm proud of it, so take a look. This is my entry for the UNE Support Aircraft Contest.
About this creation
I made the deadline (barely) for the UNE Support Aircraft contest, so here's my entry.


Name-ADS-5 Red Raven (ADS-5=Atmospheric Drop Ship-Model # Five)
Armament-2 56mm Heavy "Avenger" Chainguns, 2 Plasma Sock Cannons (above)

The Red Raven is used to drop UNE troops into hotzones quickly and decisively. Due to small size, it can go places where other larger transports can't. It's heavy weapons can provide covering fire while the troops get to the ground safely. It's also used to extract fireteams and men who are behind enemy lines and are in need of an escape craft. Holding an 8-man team, multiple Ravens when escorted by Strikebirds, can deploy a significant amount of troops onto the front lines. The plasma cannons tear through tanks, and the frightening power of the chainguns rip through infantry. In short, the Red Raven is a deadly transport that can slip past the enemy and deliver soldiers where they are needed the most.






Rear view, here you can see the back door and the thrusters.



Left wing. The wings are waaaay too studdy. I just lack the plates to provide a studless design, ignore that.



Right wing.



Close up on the chainguns (yes I ripped them from the republic shuttle. I just really loved the design.) and the cockpit. I really like how this area tuned out. The cockpit could have been better, but oh well.



Close up on the door and thrusters. I love that door. Hope you do too. :-)



Empty troop bay. The seats are integrated directly into the bottom of the craft. I thought the design was good.



Another shot of the seats, and the rifle rack. (in both pics, you can see the combat shotgun on top of the rifle rack)



Cockpit and gun construction shot.



Wing detail close up.



Final shot with Red for scale.

Ok, it's up. Judge now!

Nice job, I love the colors, way better than my transports, as they don't have very much room to hold troops...I build in a style that is "fast enough to get there and heavy enough to make a difference."

Yes, I'm here, I'm alive, and I have the time to JUDGE! Aesthetics - 7/10 - Kinda blocky in the middle, but otherwise good. Originality - 9/10 - I'm noticing a pattern in your aircraft, and I like it. Colors - 5/5 Background Information - 5/5 Overall - 26/30
